    Bergy's Note:

    Every country has it's own unique curries. This is a lovely smooth flavored curry with the added bananas. Serve over rice with chutney, chopped apples, chopped tomatoes on the side. Rotis, Naam or chapatis set off this meal to a T. Temper the heat by the amount of Curry powder & Chillies that you use

      I actually found this quite bland; especially considering how involved it was to make (it wasn't hard, it just took a while). Maybe that's just me!... Personally, I think it could do with almost twice the amount of coconut (I used 60g for 3 servings; 100g would be better); a bit more banana (1.5 large bananas, for 3); and perhaps more lemongrass (I used 1 stalk for half the recipe, 2 might have been better). It might be nice with some currants/raisins thrown in for texture and sweetness.
